Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Daylilies are traditional candidates for the perennial border. They blend perfectly into mixed and shrub borders. Compound color by massing or combine two complementary colors for a dramatic composition. Excellent edging plant for rigid sidewalks, naturalistic flagstone footpaths and for tidy color at the edge of the lawn. Lovely for nesting rough edges of landscape boulders, or for color around rock strewn water features and dry stream beds.
